Hi all,
I have been reading everything in these forums for the last couple of months with the goal to learn to pick the perfect diamond. The problem I just seem to always give up for one reason or another. This is much harder than I expected. I finally push myself to at least reserve one, but I would really appreciate any suggestions from the experts here.

My price target is 7k so I am pushing it with this one. The goal a VS1, color I, and 0.9-1 carats with AGS certificate. Do you think this is a good choice? Do you recommend any other ones?
I am trying to surprise my girlfriend and I guess this is a little more stressful than I expected.
Thanks a million

From the info we have everything points to a really stunning stone :sun:

What did the gemologist say about it?

I think it looks good! Does she have particular specs in mind? I would choose higher color (at least H) and drop in clarity (any clarity level as long as it's eye clean). Did she specify I / VS1?

Thanks for the comments...
Newbie question. How do I check with a gemologist?
Do you recommend any alternative diamonds?

Centralsquare... I really don't know what she has in mind. It is a complete surprise. So I put together the specs on my own. Maybe risky?
Do you recommend any stones?
